Hexagon Quilt Progress
This weekend I made some great progress on my hexagon quilt. I'm making these diamond units and then will join them all together.
I finished three of these diamonds this weekend, all except for these last three little pieces, which I finished attaching during nap time today.
This is what it will look like when it's all connected. I have a total of four done now. My blues are somewhat sorted by depth of color - from dark blue to turquoise to light blue. It seems like there are a lot of lighter colors here but that's just because those are the ones I've put together so far. It will be a balance of the three shades in the end. I have little snack size ziplock bags with the hexagon sets for each diamond unit so I can just grab one and not have to sort pieces.
This is a really fun quilt to make, but it's definitely going to take forever to make a king size quilt. But just imagine how cool this will look when it's done ;)
I'm a born again believer in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ the Son of God. I am a very happily married wife and a homeschooling mom of five of the greatest kids in the world. We live in a little mountain town in Wyoming, which we love. I enjoy reading and studying God's Word, homeschooling my treasures from Heaven, sewing and doing all sorts of crafts.

Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow... For babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow... So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep... I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep!!
